In my previous post I showed you how I create phone cases. Since I opened up my Etsy shop I needed a way to take quality pictures of my products. I made my own light box. Its nothing fancy but it was a cheap way to get the job done.
Materials you need:
White gift bag tissue
White masking tape
2 desk lamps (I purchased mine here.)
A box cutter
First I cut the flaps off one side of the box. I kept the other side taped up. That will be the back.
I drew rectangles on three sides of the box about 1 inch from the edges.
After that I cut the squares out with the box cutter.
I cut the tissue paper to fit around the outside of each cut out.
I cut the tissue paper that would run along the back of the box long enough to cover the bottom of the box and also run outside the box. This will ensure that the table doesn’t show when I photograph my pictures.
I placed the two lamps on each side and bent them so they would shine through the sides. You could get another one to shine through the top but the two worked just fine for me.
This is the finished product:
